    Wow, MegaTen! That $30 deal probably made the difference. Nice job for a niche RPG to even be mentioned by NPD.

    • Barrylocke89

  • Aristides

  • Domii

    Wow the Last of Us is still going strong. I wonder how much its lifetime sales is gonna be after its all set and done.

  • NintendoPSX

    • RovCal

      me too. extremely disappointed to see COD and battlefield. why are they STILL in the top ten?

    • Mantiskilla

      Yeah we get it, you don’t like fps, or maybe even western games in general. Sounds like on a site like this that focuses on Japanese gaming you made the comment so you could get validation from other like minded people. Kinda sad really, Never quite understood why people hate certain genres so much.

  • GriffithOfTheHawk

    The Wii U is the new GC. Can’t wait to see if the reception of PS4 & Xbox One is any different.

    But the 3ds is dead! nintendo is failing!
